For its first edition, the Festival Les Traversées du Marais invites you for three days to discover one of the most popular historic district of Paris. Organized in the 3rd and 4th districts of the capital, this event is a musical journey through the most beautiful places in the Marais. Free concerts and performances await you in 14 emblematic places of the district. From rock to classical music, from jazz to French music, there will be something for everyone! This festival is to be discover as a family, in places of exceptional architectural heritage like the Picasso Museum, Carnavalet Museum, Arts et Métiers Museum or Chasse et de la Nature Museum, as well as the Memorial of the Shoah, or, at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie. Les Traversées du Marais start in the Halles du Carreau du Temple, run by Faubourg Simone.
Concert and gospel songs
Two events have caught our attention. The first is a gospel concert and black spiritual proposed by the Gospel Legend Singers on September 12th, 2015 at the Crédit Municipal de Paris. The second is a presentation of Simon Dalmais at the Hotel De Ville (Town Hall) of the 4th arrondissement of Paris, the 13th of September 2015. This former keyboardist Sébastien Tellier also collaborated with the talented Camille, before embarking on a solo career. It delivers captivating songs with a sensual voice accompanied only by piano and sometimes violins. Two very different styles that will make you love the Marais and music. Notice to music lovers!
Les Traversées du Marais, from September 11th to 13th, 2015.
Almost all concerts will be free, and the rate of paid programs will not exceed €10.
